They are backing our vision to shape the future of development

Provisioning development environments remains to be a pain. Existing solutions focus too much on remote environments somewhere in 'the cloud'. Daytona's approach is much smarter – help the developer in any environment, remote or local.

I'm super excited about Daytona, they're solving a key problem for any at scale organization like Snyk: how do I make it easy for my developers to get up and running, context switch, and spend more time in flow instead of chasing environment mismatches.

It was so simple to clone a GitHub repository, make edits, and run the pre-commit checks—all within the SDE with my browser as the interface! As an ML engineer and scientist, I'm excited how standardized environments will make collaboration more productive.
